Dillian Whyte goes off on Deontay Wilder
By Charles Brun: Dillian Whyte was up in arms on Thursday after hearing what Deontay Wilder said about him in an interview. Wilder views Whyte as a needy fighter who the more popular fighters have passed because he doesn’t bring anything to the table.
The former WBC heavyweight champion Wilder basically summed his thoughts on how he sees Whyte (28-2, 19 KOs), and it’s not a pretty picture I must say.
Whyte, 33, is still bitter about being shut out by Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) during his five-year reign as the WBC champion, as he wanted a title shot against him and was ignored.
“He ain’t nothing but s*** to my toilet paper – that I flushed a year ago, said Wilder to Sky Sports in giving his thoughts about Whyte. “But let him keep fighting. Keep going, mate. Soon we shall see each other once more. He is the scum between my toes.”
As you can see, Wilder doesn’t think too highly of Dillian. However, as the WBC interim champion, Whyte might get a crack at Wilder if he beats Tyson Fury in their trilogy match next month on July 24th.
If Wilder defeats Fury and then conquers the winner of the Anthony Joshua vs. Oleksandr Usyk fight next December, Whyte will get his chance to fight Deontay in 2022 if he doesn’t continue to ignore him.
“It’s a shame Tyson Fury is going to beat him again and then I won’t get to fight him. He’s a pathetic, fragile, fraud clown,” said Whyte to Sky Sports in reacting to Wilder’s trash talk about him.
“He ran and hid from me for over three years. It’s a shame to see the last American heavyweight champion behaving in this fashion, it’s disgraceful,” said Whyte.
It’s all Dillian’s fault that he never got a fight with Wilder. Deontay told Whyte what he had to do for him to get a title shot, which was to agree to face Luis ‘King Kong’ Ortiz in a WBC title eliminator.
Instead of following Wilder’s directions, Whyte chose not to fight Ortiz and instead fought Joseph Parker, Robert Helenius, and Derek Chisora In other words, Whyte wanted to be given the title shot without taking part in a WBC title eliminator. That never happened.
When Whyte finally did agree to take part in a title eliminator against Oscar Rivas, Wilder was nearing the end of his reign as the WBC champion.
“He’s a coward inside and outside the ring. The next time I see that ********* ********, I will hurt him,” said Whyte about what he wants to do to Deontay.
Wilder would have fought Dillian ages ago if he’d made a name for himself in the U.S the way that Tyson Fury has. Whyte hasn’t lifted a finger to make himself known to the U.S audience by fighting in the States.
